Berliner Unterwelten (Berlin Underworlds Association) is a non profit organization which offers various tours into the underground of Germany's capital Berlin. Once founded as a group of enthusiasts who tried to explore the underground remains of the German history, they now started to guide tourists and spelunkers into the underground. The tours range from very easy touristic tours to rather strenuous explorations which require some climbing skills. All tours start at the Unterwelten Museum, at the subway station Gesundbrunnen.

The tours show many different kinds of underground structures. It starts with Third Reich bunkers, World War II remains, torture cells of the SS, and hiding places of the anti-Nazi resistance. However, the most famous Führerbunker, the bunker where Adolf Hitler died, was destroyed completely by the Allied Forces after the war and there is only a sign to commemorate the history where it once was. There is a Cold War bunker with decontamination cambers and equipment to survive Armageddon. It was equipped for 3,600 civilians to survive one year. And there are tours to abandoned underground stations, flight tunnels by the East German opposition movements, brewery cellars, and more. Most subterranea we list on are of one kind, but beneath the city of Berlin all kinds of subterranea constructed during its history can be found.
